"Expensive disappointment" star star_border star_border star_border star_border I had had high hopes for this expensive range of pans but sadly there has been little to celebrate. Food constantly sticks and I have to add oil every time I cook. I had brought several sized pans from this range but sadly they all underperformed and I will be going back to my tefal range of non stick. Mrs Hayward - 18 February 2021 support_agent A note from the team Thank you for your review. We’re sorry this frying pan hasn’t worked as well as you’d expected and we’ve sent you an email. The magneto base heats so quickly and to such a degree that pre-heating without food in isn’t needed. You can just switch the heat on and place your food in almost immediately.
